Optique des Cristaux Liquides (OCL)

The Optics of Liquid Crystals (OCL) team is recognized for his expertise in the realization of liquid crystal based optical devices. It develops original technics for the modulation of light, systems based on adaptive holography and methods for the control of ultrashort laser pulses. It has partnerships with THALES and other industrial partners and is co-founder of the LabCom SOFTLITE with the company FastLite. Recent results include : delay line for femtosecond pulses and hyperspectral imaging; cholesteric liquid crystals and Berry phase; methods of vibrometry based on dynamic digital holography; optical fiber sensors based on liquid crystal light valves.
